Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $341,261)
Raytheon proposes a novel approach to address Concealed Weapons Detection (CWD), using high sensitivity sub-millimeter-wave (mmW) detectors integrated onto CMOS circuits. The proposed effort for this program is a continuation of their mmW development and will use existing assets and test equipment to the greatest extent possible.
This project is a continuation of the work that was performed Raytheon's award 2006-IJ-CX-K024. Its goal is to reduce the size and cost of millimeter wave (MMW) devics capable of detecting concealed weapons, to include bomb belts worn by terrorists. Phase II will fabricate a new submmw detector array breadboard to generate real-time sub-mmw imaging. The FPA design for the second program phase will begin in Phase I to expedite the subsequent demonstration. Data deliverables include interim and final reports; and test data analysis from both laboratory and field demonstrations. Detector spectral and sensitivity data will also be provided.
